    Default Austro-Hungarian Canteen Used Post-War?

    Hi Guys,
    I found this canteen in the trash when I was a kid in Germany, more than 35 years ago. I have never been able to identify it with any certainty...
    Any ideas about the C.A.S. 1922??
    Any input is appreciated, Glenn

    Glenn, it is a post WW1 Czechoslavakian copy of the Austro-Hungarian 1915-18 0.5 litre water bottle, the only difference being the makers name and date....
    Prost ! Steve.
